Darkstar and what he said...
"For me it is not a song. The best moments are when structure melts away and the real playing takes over"

A well played Dew aint bad either

Dark Star and the Eleven are great but they left them off for so long. Live Dead really etched them in (also StSteve). Too bad too, esp because Drums/Space as D/S replacement became formulaic itself.

For me that leaves Playin and The Other One, both played throughout the career, and TOO has the edge for me, even the later Playin sandwiches recalled prior efforts sometimes. Great examples of flexibility:

8-21-68
9-28-72
12-26-79

How about Brokedown or Attics. Songs that reach in and grab your heartstrings with complex emotion. They may not "define" the dead but are masterpieces in my opinion.

Peace.............
